North Carolina Passes the Country’s Worst Voter Suppression Law A police officer watches over demonstrators near the state legislature during "Moral Monday" protests at the General Assembly in Raleigh, N.C., Monday, June 24, 2013. (AP Photo/Gerry Broome) I’ve been in Texas this week researching the history of the Voting Rights Act at the LBJ Library. As I’ve been studying how the landmark civil rights law transformed American democracy, I’ve also been closely following how Republicans in North Carolina—parts of which were originally covered by the VRA in 1965—have made a mockery of the law and its prohibition on voting discrimination.
White nationalist Richard Spencer banned from 26 European nations A leading figure in the U.S. white nationalist movement said Wednesday that he hasn't received government confirmation of his reported ban from entering more than two dozen European countries. Poland's state-run news agency PAP says Polish authorities banned Richard Spencer from entering 26 countries in Europe's visa-free Schengen area for five years. The news agency cited unnamed sources close to Poland's Foreign Ministry. A source close to the Polish Foreign Ministry confirmed to the Associated Press that the ban has taken effect. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak on the ministry's behalf. Spencer previously was banned from the Schengen zone for three years after his 2014 arrest in Hungary, where he had planned to host a conference.
Jung memorably wrote that “the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” / Legendary Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (July 26, 1875–June 6, 1961), along with his frenemy Freud, is considered the founding father of modern analytical psychology. He coined the concepts of collective consciousness and introverted vs. extroverted personality, providing the foundation for the popular Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Though famously accused of having lost his soul, Jung had a much more heartening view of human nature than Freud and memorably wrote that “the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” On October 22 of 1959, BBC’s Face to Face — an unusual series of pointed, almost interrogative interviews seeking to “unmask public figures” — aired a segment on Jung, included in the 1977 anthology C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters (public library).

Ireland Begins Arresting Top Bankers Responsible For 2008 Crash Ireland are following in Iceland’s footsteps by jailing its top bankers responsible for the 2008 financial crash. Following from last year’s mass incarceration of 26 bankers in Iceland, Ireland is going to prosecute the 2005-2008 CEO of Anglo Irish Bank, David Drumm, on 33 criminal charges. Anonhq.com reports: These include two charges of conspiracy to defraud and false accounting relating to €7.2 billion in deposits placed in Anglo Irish Bank accounts by the then Irish Life and Permanent, between March and September 2008. 16 of the 33 charges relate to unlawfully authorizing billions in loans (to be invested back into Anglo Irish Bank) to 16 wealthy investors, in a bid to artificially prop up Anglo Irish Bank’s share price before its December 2008 collapse. Each of the 33 offenses carries a 5 or 10 year jail term, except for a single count of conspiracy to defraud, which has a maximum penalty of an “unlimited term of imprisonment” under Irish law.

Gadsden police officer: We watched Moore at football games so 'he didn't hang around the cheerleaders' Faye Gary, a police officer for 37 years in Gadsden, Alabama, where Roy Moore worked in the ’70s and ’80s, said Tuesday that local law enforcement was instructed to prevent the future Senate candidate from preying on high school cheerleaders at football games. “The rumor mill was that he liked young girls. And you know, we were advised that, you know, he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores,” the retired cop said. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that you know, he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders.” Gary worked at the time as a juvenile detective and said her department never received any official complaints about Moore, then the assistant district attorney for Etowah County.
Jacarandas: You either love them or hate them The jacaranda is a striking but polarizing piece of the Southern California streetscape. "They're pretty, but sticky.
